own way. toyou can go to c-span.org check out "first ladies." spoke about the economy and monetary policy. you can see all of the news conference tonight a on c-span. , our policy has two main elements. first, we decided to continue purchasing mortgage-backed perrities at a pace of -- month. it bears to emphasize that the committee has described this program in terms of a monthly pace of purchases rather than a total amount of expected purchases. evolution of the program to economic criteria. within this framework, the committee can vary the pace of purchases. at this meeting, the committee judge -- second, the committee kept the target to the federal fund rate. it will remain appropriate for a considerable time after the purchase program ends and if the economic recovery strengthens. the low range for the fund rate will be appropriate as long as the unemployment rate remains above 6.5%. if economic conditions provided in the guidance are a threshold and not triggers, crossing one or more these marshaled will not automatically lead to an increase in rates. rather the committee will
's on somewhat shaky ground, the economy is bad, and part of the problem is the refugees are a huge pressure point as the king sort of eloquently said today. few of us saw the foreign minister this afternoon who said it's almost as if-- he said it's as if another eight or nine, the king said 10% has been added to our population. the foreign minister said eye asked him the question the king was asked, would you ever shut your doors? and he said we just can't do that. but i have to say my nightmare scenario is i get a call at 3:00 a.m. and i'm told there are 50,000 refugees at the border, what do we do? >> margaret, just to wrap up quickly, we know the bulk of the president's time was spent in israel, trying to patch up relations there, but also calling for new thinking on the part of the israelis and palestinians. have you picked up reaction yet to what the president was saying? >> jied, in the public, especially in the left in israel, there was great-- great joy at what the president had to say about resolving the conflict. but the reaction from people sort of in the political circles was a
. let's listen. >> due to the influx and further strained the economy that is already under considerable external pressures with an unstable region, the ghoebl economy recovering. but having said that as i already alluded to, we are so grateful to the u.s. assistance in solving this enormous responsibility and together continue to appeal to international community for more help to face this calamity. i had the opportunity, obviously, to talk about the peace process and we're very delighted by the vision and depth of wisdom the president showed over the past several days with israelis and palestinians. and obviously reiterate jordan's commitment to the peace process and the crucial importance of the u.s. leadership in resuming the palestinian-israeli negotiations based on the two-state solution. there is simply no other formula, no other -- two-state solution is the only way to go and if you compare that also with the radicalization of syria, together with the peace process, this is going to be a serious threat to an already volatile region. i believe there is a window of opportunity to m
the week. the bureau could recover a little bit, despite economic disappointing data. the german economy seems to lose momentum. the ifo index dropped for the first time in a month. emma we stay in frankfurt for a closer look at the numbers. the dax fell just slightly, but bigger losses over the course of the week, finishing at 7911. that is how it went in the week in the euro stoxx 50. let's call it finishing flat. across the atlantic on wall street, the dow slightly higher, 14,496. the euro trading higher at a value of $1.2979. u.s. president barack obama has been in jordan this friday on the final leg of his middle east tour. talks with jordan's king focused primarily on the civil war in neighboring syria. >> obama said he was worried syria could become a haven for muslim extremists -- when, not if president assad is ousted. he urged the international community to work together to make sure there is a credible opposition ready to step into the breach. >> the final leg of barack obama's tour of the middle east will be dominated by one issue. with the conflict in syria on going, jordan
increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight, thank you. >>> president obama wrapped up his four-day visit to the middle east today, after helping israel and turkey end a three-year diplomatic dispute. that, in turn, will help the region deal with the civil war in syria. before he left today, the president turned his attention to the past, visiting jordan's ancient city of petra, one of the world's most celebrated archaeological sites. with t
of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and frankly many of these efeshencies by the way are already achieved in other parts of the country and with some private health systems, we could save more than $1.2 trillion that is the flawed sequester is suppos
for your health if you live in a high supply sexual economy where stds are on the rise or risk unwanted pregnancy. there are reasons celibacy is good for your health. i couldn't find one bit of data being bad for your health. >> i love how you just say it, wendy. that's why you have you have on. >> i just say it. just because you're not having sex doesn't mean you're not ejaculating. you know that. you sleep in a man's body every night. you know how it works. >> okay. not all sex but physical touch is necessary. there are programs for older folks who get things like massage because they need it. right? >> we do know nonsexual touch is one of the best life enhancing thing out there. in my book when i ask girls to get off the hook-up to schedule a massage. they will miss touch. touch is an important thing. we are seeing the rise of pets with single people. we need to reach out and get used to nonsexual touch as a good thing. >> okay. >> there are some now that not only are embracing celibacy, they are hitting the reset button even. they are called born again virgins. talk to me about it.
contributes to the local economy, $2.3 billion. so, the effect of the furloughs, as a result of sequestration, how do you expect that to play out? >> well, i can tell you that it's impacting my friends, my neighbors, it's impacting families throughout southern illinois. you're looking at people giving up 20% of their pay, and that's going to have a profound impact on the local economy. you know, those people who aren't getting a full week's pay for a full week's work won't be buying new cars. they certainly won't be buying new houses. and they won't be going down and getting that widescreen tv, or maybe going out to eat. >> right. >> and so, that's going to have a ripple effect throughout the economy. i'd like to point out, too, it's not just scott air force base. you know, we have federal prisons, and -- who are facing furloughs. that's a profound impact not only on the economy but also on the safety of those other prison employees. we have the shawnee national forest, the largest national forest in illinois, very significant impact. >> yeah. well -- >> we're losing three air control towers.
see the economy take off mr. mr. norquist? >> guest: okay, we haven't had trillion dollars spending cuts that we had an agreement by the president of the united states forced on them by the republicans to reduce spending over the next decade by a trillion dollars, so 100 million a year. they haven't started yet and they're just beginning to kick in. this a quest or is an additional $1.2 trillion over the decades to what the republicans want in the state battle we had in 2011, the budget control act was obama needs the debt ceiling to be increased because we spent so much money and republican said okay, we will raise the debt ceiling so the country doesn't default but only if you agree to a dollar for dollar reduction in spending over the next decade. that $2.5 trillion in spending restraints, not real cuts, spending, less than obama had hoped but in washington that is called a cut. if you want 10 of something and you only got eight of something, you walked away with eight but so that was the $2.5 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it hasn't happened yet. we have sever
into the economy, until they see things change substantially. and what they're talking about in terms of substantial change is the unemployment rate going down to 6.5%. the federal reserve, they have regular meetings, they give regular statements on what they're going to do. today was one of those regular meetings that was scheduled. we were not expecting a change in rates. obviously with rates as low as they are, the only option will to be raise rates and you don't typically raise rates, wolf, unless you're trying to slow an economy down. if you raise rates, it makes it harder, more expensive for people to borrow money. they spend less. they borrow less. we're not at that point right now. so rates are staying exactly where they were, the federal reserve will continue to print and pump $85 billion into the economy. the way they do that, wolf, is they buy bonds back from banks, treasuries and mortgage-backed securities that gives banks more money to lend to businesses, and individuals for their mortgages or for their business expansion, and that puts more money into the economy. they'r
to shoot straight and say, it's not as if our government's going to collapse tomorrow or the economy is going to collapse tomorrow if we do nothing. but it's time to quit kicking the can down the road. you know, the folks on the other side of the aisle have talked about a balanced approach. but there's nothing balanced about a budget that doesn't balance. frankly the republican proposal is a relatively modest one. we grow government by 3.5% a year over the next ten years and balance the budget to, you know, put our kids and grand kids in a better position. >> obviously a big issue is going to be medicare. congressman cartwright, i want to get you to respond to something that senator corker says he wants president obama to do. here's what he said over the weekend. >> when the president uses his bully pulpit to explain to the american people that families are only paying one-third of the cost of medicare, we will know that we've begun the process of trying to solve this problem. i hope that happens as soon as he gets back from israel. >> congressman cartwright, i know there's a lot of

[indiscernible] we should look at our
and improve our economy. there is a direct link between investments and infrastructure and improvements in the economy. >> now, governor rendell, i want to -- you're a politician so you are able to deal with some of the rougher news. let's go where we got grades of c plus to c minus. rail, a big one. bridges really big. ports. public parks and rec. i know leslie noth will be sad about the c minus in parks and rec. big things. rail, bridges, and ports are three large scale, important things this country needs if we want to move, you know, and then look at d. dams d, energy d plus. aviation d. this worries me frankly. drinking water d. roads d. this is humbling. tell me what you make of it. i'm interested in your take as a former politician, a recovering politician maybe. every politician says they want to invest in infrastructure. i feel like it's in every state of the union address ever and yet look at the grades greg's organization is giving us for it. >> well, the truth is every politician says it but they don't act upon it. interestingly, stimulus because of the tiger grants gave a l
and financial costs due to the influx. and has further strained the economy that is already under considerable external pressures. with an unstable region, a sluggish global economy that is still recovering. but having said that as i already alluded to, we are so grateful to the u.s. assistance in shouldering this enormous responsibility and more help in fatesing this humanitarian calamity. we had the opportunity to talk about the peace process and we're very delighted by the vision and the depth of wisdom that the president showed over the past several days in his trip with the israelis and the palestinians. obviously i reiterate jordan's commitment to the peace process. and the crucial importance of u.s. leadership in resuming the palestinian/israeli negotiations based on the two-state solution. there is simply no other formula, no other alternative. the two-state solution is the only way to go. and if you compare that also with the radicalization of syria, together with the impasse in the peace process, this is going to be a serious threat to an already-volatile region. i believe there is a
, obviously the global economy would be in jeopardy and that obviously includes u.s. markets. naturally europe is one of our biggest trading partners. but for now investors don't seem to be too stressed. it is a very tiny country. it doesn't have the same impact like say france or germany. plus, we have seen a huge rally in the stock market since the start of the year. major averages up 7% to 10%. you know, it would take a lot to change that. michael. >> be half up on the day already. >> right. and of course big frustration, people can't get to their money from the banks. but then, jim, maybe you have some encouragement. any sign perhaps banks will reopen as early as tuesday perhaps? >> that can only happen if there's an agreement here to save the banks. the restructure, shutdown, whatever you want to call it. and reorganize these banks and europe says, okay, we'll allow the european central bank, think of that like the federal reserve, putting money into these banks just to keep them alive for a few more weeks. the federal reserve of the european central bank says we will shut that money off
. let me turn to this second point. the war has affected the economy as well and left us with a legacy of higher oil prices and much higher national debt to. the iraq war costs set off a chain of events that had high reaching consequences. i was speaking about budgetary costs, but there are vast costs into civil society, here and in iraq, economic costs and financial costs, and some of those costs are borne by individual society or society at byge rather than directly the government. there were many of these costs i can talk about, but let me highlight a couple. if we think back to when we invaded iraq in 2003, oil prices to order $50 a barrel. and the markets including china and india predicted those would remain in that range for the next decade. oil prices are complicated, but most agree that iraq was one of the triggers of lead to oil prices shooting up shortly after the invasion. oil prices peaked do you since then we have rarely seen oil prices below the level of $100. if jo stieglitz were here, he would argue very strongly that we need to connect the dots, that oil prices contri

it is the fifth largest city in jordan. and the economic cost due to the influx as further stressed an economy already under considerable external pressures. having said that, as i alluded to, we are so grateful for the u.s. assistance. it is an enormous responsibility. together, we tend to -- we continue to appeal to the international community for further help in averting this calamity. we had an opportunity to talk about the peace process. we are very delighted with the vision and death the president showed -- vision and depth that the president showed. this conveys the crucial part u.s. leadership in is really-palestinian negotiations. the two-state solution is the only way to go. theou compare that with radicalization of syria, together with the impasse in the peace process, this will be a serious threat to an already volatile region. the window is fast closing for negotiations, primarily due to increasing sectarian activities. there is no time to waste. the prime minister shared details of jordan's homegrown model. we believe that we have a model as a clear end goal, a parliamentary gove

smaller, guess what? a lot of people lose jobs. this economy which is very dependent on financial services. will 50% of the economy will definitely suffer so it is a huge, huge fight. plus, a lot of people are going to have to lose money if they've had uninsured deposits in those banks. in other words, were they above the insurance threshold? did they have more than 100,000 euro? which is approximately $130,000 in their accounts? they may lose 30, 40, 50% of that cash and instead get shares or bonds in a future bank that they don't know how much it will be worth. extremely complicated. sufficed to say what is perhaps on the line, perhaps poe tlings the first country leaving the euro. >> from cyprus for us, thank you, michelle. >>> back here, a new twist in the search for the man who gunned down the colorado corrections chief including reports that the murder was ordered by a white supremacist gang. we're live in monument, colorado with an update on that. >>> first a lot going on. a few things we thought you should know. an interesting story today in business week. it says mitt romney strug
's straining their economy here. there's also fear about those chemical weapons in syria, will those come across the borderer and cause more violence and chaos? when i sat down yesterday with the israeli president, shimon peres, he said king abdullah and other leaders in the arab world need to step up here to stop the violence in syria. take a listen. >> it's an arab problem, it's an arab organization and league. they have to do what the africans did in africa, organize their force under the auspices of the united nations and stop the bloodshed. >> reporter: but so far king abdullah has said he opposes any kind of foreign military intervention in syria, so we're till at a stand still in that con felix. we'll be looking -- conflict. we'll be looking for that at the news conference and, let's not forget there's pressure on president obama as well not just from republicans back home in the u.s., but also democrats like senator carl levin saying that the president should help set up a no-fly zone around syria, maybe there should be some sort of strategic surgical air strikes against president
for everybody in our state. that was an amazing challenge when the economy ran into some much difficulty. we had in districts are representative, in the southern part, kokomo, we built chrysler transmissions there and had over 5000 people working, building those transmissions before the troubles it. after the troubles hit, it was almost down to zero. and in the northernmost part, an elkhart county, we countyr.v.'s for the world, and then diesel hit $4 a gallon and credit dried up. then the economy tight end. we had a large number of folks who were wondering how am i going to keep my job, how am i going to pay my mortgage, how am i going to be able to keep my house, the most basic thing. of the things that was designed in our state was to try to train people said that they had more of an ability than just to be working on it and not so skills position, and we set up with our community college system across the state, retraining programs so that they were able to run machines, able to learn advanced manufacturing. and just below the area where the r.v. companies were, was a manufacturinge area, an
sector in the economy here at the time of purchase where we do not know where it is on the cost or who is going to pay. there is common ground on the law. everybody wants it. we want to produce a high value of care in the marketplace with better access, better quality, lower costs. no disagreement. the real disagreement comes on what the role of government is in accomplishing that goal, and there lies the challenge of the affordable care act. last year there were two near-death experiences, the supreme court decision and the election. the affordable care act is the law, and we have to figure out a way to make it work better and dealing with this ongoing debate about what the proper ole of government should be. we know the status quo is unsustainable. when i was born, health care was 4% of the cost of gdp. when my children were born, it was 8%. grandchildren, 16%. if i'm lucky enough to have great-grandchildren, it will be 2% of gdp. that is unsustainable. we have to figure out what is the right structure today to deal with costs, access, and quality and all the products, and once we do

and they face an economic depression. there are some forecasts that cyprus will lose 20% of its economy. that is a depression. so those two are losers. the russian mob and the peel of cyprus. the winner here so far looks to be germany's angela merkel. she has forced the cypriots to pay up as a price for staying in the euro. they won a major victory getting that money out of cyprus and beating back the russians. there you have it. heather: so you said the russians basically lose their shirts over this. do you think they will take this lying down? what can they do? >> no, they're not. what they can do is up in the air but remember russia supplies a lot of energy to western europe in the form of natural gas. this fall it is possible, purely speculative it is possible some of those energy supplies will be squeezed. russian mob does not losing billions of dollars. vladmir putin, good friend with some of the oligarches, he is not happy. heather: we're here in the good ol' u.s. of a, so any impact on us here? >> yes. minor leagues but we're breathing a sigh of relief. when the stock market ope
at where defense spending is today either as a percentage of the economy or budget, it's below post-war norms. under the president's budget it will fall more rapidly. the main cause that we saw today of the explosive growth in spending over ten years, president obama made that worse although the republicans in congress ten years ago didn't cover themselves and the changing face of america. we have many more now supported by workers for the retirement programs and a noble important purpose. they need to be preserved for the next generation. >> you are a proud veteran and something i find to be interesting to some degree of polling is the lack of availability for benefits for those who have served so nobly and come home. i want to put up the stats for you. veterans affairs data. 600,000 veterans have benefits and 245,000 have benefitings back lock logged aier or more. the average is 273 days. the first time claimants from iraq and afghanistan, the average wait is 316 days. how come if you go out and fight for your country and bleed and come back wounded, you are waiting up to a year t
china and its economy, and the deals it has cut in countries such as iran, pakistan, etc., you will see that probably is true. page of "thent washington times" yesterday is how china is the largest exporter of weapons. is that a direct link to what happened? guest: i think if you look at how china has positioned itself -- and they have every right to. we are the ones who i think made a strategic error. but if you look at how china has positioned itself economically to take advantage of what is coming out of all this chaos -- afghanistan as wl, pakistan as well. pakistan considers china it's number one friend. strongeru lk at the assertion in east asia of influence, you can see how china has benefited. our office was the leading proponent of what became known as the pivot to east asia while i was in the senate. i spent a lot of time in east -- and weefocused focused as much as we could on strengthening relations with japan, korea, vietnam, singapore, and changing the formula in burma and i led the first delegation into burma in 10 years or it -- in 10 years. by going into iraq the way we
